A sequel to ‘The Shining’ is coming out 39 years later. Watch a full trailer for ‘Doctor Sleep.’

Ewan McGregor is playing Jack Torrence’s (Jack Nicholson) son, Danny, all grown up in ‘Doctor Sleep.’ Warner Bros.

  • Warner Bros. is releasing a sequel to “The Shining,” 39 years after its release, this fall.
  • Sunday, the final full trailer for “Doctor Sleep” was released online and it shows a grown-up Danny Torrence (Ewan McGregor) back inside the Overlook Hotel.
  • This time, he won’t be dealing with the undead at the hotel. He’s trying to fight off a group of demons called the True Knot who are after people who have his special power, the shine.
  • In “Doctor Sleep,” Torrence works to save a young girl, Abra, who has learned too much about the True Knot before they can get a hold of her.
  • If you’re familiar with Stephen King’s 2013 followup to “The Shining,” it looks like the film will take some liberties in order to make it connect to Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 film. We’ll spend some more time in the Overlook Hotel even though it’s not in the book that much.
  • “Doctor Sleep” is in theatres Friday, November 8. Watch the trailer below.
